The general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has revealed how the New Patriotic Party (NPP) intends to win the 2020 elections.
According to a report by Starrfmonline.com, Nketia, also known as General Mosquito, added that the NPP has plans of using the violence that rocked the recently held by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon.
Interacting with people present at the 'Aagbe Wor' demonstration on Thursday, February 7, 2019, he explained that the violence formed part of NPP’s campaign promise.
“They are implementing their campaign promise and that campaign promise is to unleash violence, and through violence cow everybody down, for them to impose themselves on Ghanaians and do whatever they want to do,” he said.
He went on to say that the immersion in water does not deprive the leopard of its spots and when it comes to the NPP, the 'all-die-be-die' spots are still there.
On Thursday, January 31, 2019, voters at the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency selected Lydia Seyram Alhassan to replace her husband, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko, who passed away in the United States of America (USA).
Her swearing-in at the House of Parliament was marred by a walkout by the minority side, amidst the display of placards that read “bloody widow.”
The government has meanwhile set up a three-member commission, chaired by a former boss of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) Emile Short, to within a month, unravel the circumstances leading to the violence.
Other members of the presidential commission are Henrietta Mensah Bonsu and Patrick K. Acheampong, with Ernest Kofi Abotsi as secretary.
